The Fun Stuff
Random thing about me? I drove 18-wheelers and 5-ton trucks in the US Army.
Perfect Saturday? Fix meals for the week, clean the house with my 15-year-old daughter, then watch a movie.
Funny family memory? My 80-year-old mom had a crush on her primary care provider. She used to dress very nicely for all her appointments.
